Hamilton Harty (1879-1941)

Ireland has perhaps contributed more of its traditional music to world culture than it has classical music. One of the few exceptions is the composer Hamilton Harty (1879-1941), but some of his compositions include traditional Irish tunes. For a 1904 composition festival for which a prize was awarded to a suite or symphony which used traditional Irish tunes, Harty presented his “An Irish Symphony” which included such tunes and won. This is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
